World Record Walleye
Keith Kavajecz
Trophy walleye waters are the best bet for a new world record.

If you're after the next world record walleye and live in the East, you should spend your summer trolling and jigging the eastern basin of Lake Ontario near Henderson Harbor or the mouth of the St. Lawrence. By October your focus should shift to the Bay of Quinte. The Ottawa River and the Gauley River in West Virginia offer a decent opportunity.

In the South, TVA reservoirs still have the potential to produce a giant. Bull Shoals in Missouri and Greers Ferry in Arkansas are two lakes that produce 20 pound class walleye. In the West, the Columbia River provides probably the only legitimate shot.

In the North, think Lake Tobin in Saskatchewan, Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, Wisconsin's Fox River, Kentucky's Lake Cumberland, Dale Hollow in Tennessee, and Saginaw Bay in Michigan.
